Anderson Cooper, 'The Colbert Report'By now, everyone's seen Anderson Cooper get the giggles on CNN over the story about Gerard Depardieu peeing in the aisle of an airplane. What set Cooper off was his own changing of the actor's last name to Depard-two, so 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) decided to help keep Cooper in stitches with more pun-tastic celebrity poop names.

Stephen Colbert offered up Hosni Poo-barek, Camilla Parker-Bowels, Dr. Sanjay Poop-ta and even Anthony Pooper, but why leave this one to the professionals. "Celebrity Poop Names" is a game the whole family can play.

Anderson Cooper Has a Giggle Fit During Gerard Depardieu Pee Segment (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 18th 2011 12:15PM
Anderson Cooper has a giggle fit.It was a wild night on CNN. First Christine O'Donnell walked off 'Piers Morgan Tonight' in the middle of an interview. Then, Anderson Cooper got a serious case of the giggles during a 'Ridiculist' segment about French actor Gerard Depardieu's public urination on an plane.

Depardieu is accused of peeing into a bottle while his flight was stuck on the tarmac; he claims he wasn't allowed to use the bathroom. In telling the story, Cooper threw out about 20 pee-puns, which he found so hilarious that he started giggling uncontrollably for about twenty seconds. "This has never actually happened to me," Cooper said, fighting through laughter.

The line in particular that seemed to trip him up was, "All I can say is, they're lucky it wasn't a Depar-two."

It's good to know even CNN isn't above some quality bathroom humor. Check out the video after the jump.

Who's Replacing Regis Philbin? Ryan Seacrest, Andy Cohen, Mark Consuelos on Short List

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 20th 2011 6:10AM
Regis PhilbinEver since Regis Philbin announced his impeding retirement live on-air back in January, speculation's been rife as to who will replace him on 'Live! With Regis and Kelly.'

Now one report says that the morning show's distributors, Disney-ABC Domestic Television, have narrowed the field to just three candidates.

According to 'The Wall Street Journal,' those candidates are: TV hosts Ryan Seacrest ('American Idol') and Andy Cohen ('Watch What Happens Live'), and co-host Kelly Ripa's husband, actor and TV host Mark Consuelos ('All My Children').

In contrast to the 79-year old Philbin, they're all relatively young, with Cohen the oldest at age 43. All three are veterans of hosting live TV, and both Cohen and Consuelos have filled in for Philbin recently.

The 'WSJ' reports that producers plan to reboot 'Live!' once Philbin steps down in November. So who's got the edge?

Producers Prank Anderson Cooper on '360' With Embarrassing VideoOn 'Anderson Cooper 360' (weeknights, 10PM ET on CNN), producers pranked Anderson Cooper with highly embarrassing video of an appearance he made on 'To Tell the Truth' as a child.

While correspondent Isha Sesay read a story on Marg Helgenberger's recent swipe at Justin Bieber, producers surreptitiously inserted a still from the video that showed young Cooper in a furry, purple wig. "Why was that picture up there? Wait a minute," said Cooper. "How did ...? Where did this picture suddenly materialize from?"

Anderson Cooper Delivers Blistering Anti-Snooki Rant (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 13th 2011 6:30PM
Anderson Cooper on Snooki on 'Anderson Cooper 360'Snooki may have enough fans to make 'Jersey Shore' a hit, to write a bestselling book, and to get paid handsomely for speaking engagements, but Anderson Cooper does not count himself among her followers. Last night on 'Anderson Cooper 360' (weekdays, 9PM on CNN), Cooper laid out a laundry list of reasons why Snooki has him hot and bothered in his "Ridiculist."

"I'm telling you, Snooki is one impossibly lucky, unusually spunky, freakishly tanned, beer-guzzling, juicehead hugging, muscle-loving, Botero bodied, pint-sized money-making-machine," he said. Cooper was fired up about the news that Snooki and her 'Jersey Shore' castmates are getting a raise that would give them $100,000 per episode. "If you listen closely, you can hear school teachers around the country weeping right now," he said.

Cooper also noted that Snooki earned several thousand dollars more than Toni Morrison from Rutgers, who hired both for speaking engagements, comparing Morrison's philosophical prose to Snooki's statements about juiceheads getting "nut shrinkage and bacne." Hey, it's all knowledge at some level, Anderson.

Who Will Replace Katie Couric on the 'CBS Evening News'?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 4th 2011 1:30PM
Katie CouricIn what could be the least-surprising news we've heard this year, the A.P. found out from their sources over the weekend that Katie Couric is going to be leaving the 'CBS Evening News' this year to start her own daytime talk show in 2012.

It wasn't just the consistent third-place finish that prompted Couric to leave; it seemed like she wasn't 100 percent comfortable in the role of network evening news anchor. She likes talking to people, and in the daytime arena she'll be able to excel in the way she did when she was on the 'Today' show for 15 years.

So, it now comes down to who is going to replace Couric at the anchor desk. It doesn't seem like CBS will make the same move it made five years ago when it courted Couric; who knows if they even have $15 million per year to throw around anymore. But there seem to be plenty of internal and external candidates for CBS to consider for the job. After the jump, a quick list possibilities and a chance to take a poll so you can tell us who you'd like to see win the job.

Anderson Cooper is a respected journalist who is always quick to report from dangerous trouble spots. He also speaks in an informal, conversational manner that can a bit jarring to hear from a newsman.

During Cooper's appearance on the 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11:00PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart had some fun with Cooper's loose use of language.

"I've been doing war stuff for about 18 years," Cooper explained to Stewart, during a discussion of the current uprisings in the Middle East.

"Do you call it 'war stuff'?" Stewart wondered, causing Cooper to crack up.

"You know, front lines and s**t," Stewart continued to jest.

Anderson Cooper Recounts 'Being Pummeled' in Egypt on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 10th 2011 3:42AM
Anderson Cooper, 'Late Show with David Letterman'The media has covered extensively the difficult time Anderson Cooper had while reporting the political uprising in Egypt against President Hosni Mubarak. At the heart of the struggle, there have been mobs of pro- and anti-Mubarak supporters on the streets fighting and rioting.

Unfortunately, as is often the case with mobs, things can quickly escalate beyond the actual issues they congregated for. Some people seem to just like the violence of it. Cooper talked candidly about the experience of being "pummelled" on 'Late Show with David Letterman' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

While attempting to talk to some of the pro-Mubarak supporters, Cooper, his cameraman and producer went a little too far into the chaos.

Anderson Cooper Describes Getting Attacked by Pro-Mubarak Mob in Egypt (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Feb 2nd 2011 1:15PM

Anderson Cooper and his CNN film crew were attacked Wednesday by supporters of embattled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak while reporting on the mass protests in Egypt.

Speaking on 'American Morning' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on CNN), Cooper described how he and his crew were punched multiple times in the head after being descended upon by a pro-Mubarak mob:

"It was pandemonium, there was no control to it. Suddenly, a young man would come up, look at you, and punch you right in the face. The instinct is to try to punch back, or push back, but in a situation like that, you really can't because that just inflames the crowd more. So all we could do is walk as quickly as possible, stick together, and seek a safe location."

Ted Nugent 'Loves' Sarah Palin, But Wouldn't Vote for Her for President (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 6th 2011 3:40PM
Appearing on 'Anderson Cooper 360' (weekdays, 10 PM ET on CNN) rocker, hunter and outspoken Tea Party supporter Ted Nugent heaped praise upon Sarah Palin, but also said she hasn't yet convinced him she has what it takes to be president.

"(Palin's) coming from the street, she's coming from the we-the-people rank-and-file, she makes sense when she talks, she says all the right things, she's sincere, she's knowledgeable , she's articulate, she's damn good-looking, plus she kills moose, how can you go wrong?" Nugent gushed.

However, when Cooper pressed Nugent on whether Palin would make a good president, Nugent balked.

"It's too early to tell. Right know, if we had a vote, I couldn't vote for Sarah Palin. And I love her. I love her madly, and I respect her."

When somebody as naturally sympathetic to Palin as The Nuge doesn't believe he can vote for her, maybe it's time we stop talking about the former half-governor of Alaska as a viable presidential candidate.
